Mount Women's Soccer Downed by UMBC

Emmitsburg, Md. (September 1, 2019)--Mount St. Mary's fell to UMBC, 3-0, on Sunday afternoon at Waldron Family Stadium on campus.  Elisabeth Rockhill paced the Mountaineers with a team-high four shots in the contest.

UMBC scored twice in the final 10 minutes of the first half to break a scoreless tie.  In the 37th minute, Danielle Fuentes sent Laura Ventura free down the middle with a through ball.  Ventua took the pass, made a couple of dribblers, and slipped a shot past Mount goalkeeper Sydni Surowiec for the first goal of the game.  Six minutes later, it was Ventura who found Fuentes with a through ball to set her in on the keeper.  Fuentes tapped the ball to the lower right part of the goal to extend UMBC's lead to 2-0 at the half.

The Mount (0-4) had a great chance to cut into the deficit in the 77th minute on a corner kick opportunity.  Rockhill sent the corner kick into the box and found Carter Merrigan on the right side.  Merrigan fired a shot richocheted off the left goalpost, and UMBC was able to maintain the two-goal advantage.  Five minutes later, Christina Corbi scored off a rebound of a Caroline Koutsos shot to make it 3-0.

UMBC (1-1-2) held a 16-to-12 advantage in shots and an 8-to-3 margin in corner kicks in the game.  Surowiec made a pair of saves in the first half for the Mountaineers while Charlotte Elrod made three saves while playing the second stanza.  Alyssa Minnick made five saves to post the shutout for UMBC.
